Example Forecast 25/01/14 – 26/01/14 – Friday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A big deep Low of 960 millibars will be sitting over Iceland by Midday on Saturday with a High of 1028 millibars over Western Russia and the Baltic Sea. Another Low in the Mid-Atlantic of 996 millibars will be heading in our direction (East), pushed / helped along by a High pressure of 1028 millibars over the Azores. Sunday will see the Mid-Atlantic and Icelandic Low join together North West of Northern Ireland, forming one entity of 960 millibars, which will be throwing waves of frnts over much of the UK over the period. The Baltic High pressure will be pushed East into Russia more, still at 1028 millibars, and the Azorean High will rise into the Mid-Atlantic, and reach 1032 millibars. All this will mnean swell for Westerly Coastal areas, but generally with West in the winds too. Easterly Coasts will also have swell, but less due to the cross-offshore winds. Make sure you read the overall detail and your areas to make the most of what there is………

OVERALL

Surf in places and all around really, read your areas. Scotland looks fun at times and the most certain, wind-wise, as South Western England looks onshore and lumpy, although at times it may be ok, just not great. Wales will be rideable, and clean-ish at South facing spots, and the East Coast will be fun on Saturday. So a mixed bag, so do read your areas to make the most of what there is, good hunting……

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A challenging weekend, for you surf and wind-wise. The South West will probably be too big, Wales is probably more manageable, and the South and East Coasts would be the best for you guys, read your areas to get the best of what there is……..

It should be remembered

It should be remembered:

  • Regardless of the Weekend Outlook if there is surf, you should be out there to improve your surfing ability
  • so unless it’s flat, just ignore it(!) and go surfing.
  • The Weekend Outlook is aimed at those who are competent at paddling out in 6ft plus surf and looking for perfect conditions.
  • This is a SURF report, we care about the waves, as to whether it is sunny, rainy, snowy or hailing is incidental, and neither here nor there as far as we are concerned.
  • Also note that this is always written for midday, so there may be variances during the AM and PM.
  • Wave Heights are written in what you are actually taking in the face / duck diving, we are not into macho bs of measuring the wave from the back, this is the real thing, what you drop and ride = simple.
